The Legal Profession Uniform Law (Vic) (the Uniform Law) commenced operation on 1 July 2015. The Uniform Law replaces the Legal Profession Act 2004 and the regulations and rules made under that Act.
The Legal Services Commissioner is the designated local regulatory authority to receive and deal with complaints about the legal profession. This includes complaints about a legal practitioner's conduct.
Complaints about the legal profession are dealt with principally in Chapter 5 of the Uniform Law.
The Uniform Law provides that any person can make a complaint to the Legal Services Commissioner that involves a consumer matter or a disciplinary complaint or both.
